Hello!

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work. Unfortunately, we do not think this material would be right for us, and therefore we would not make your most effective advocate. At this time, a pass from Kim or me at this address indicates a pass from both of us. Please know that this is an incredibly subjective industry, and other agents may feel differently. Thank you for thinking of us, and best of luck to you.

We apologize for the form reply & batched email. Unfortunately, the volume of queries we receive means that individual replies are impossible, and a batch reply is the only way to ensure that every query gets a timely evaluation & response. Thank you for understanding.

Best,
Margaret

CNR: 8/28
Rejected: 10/16 in a large mass email. Didn't even come from the agent's email, so I was confused as to who this was in regards to. It's been six months since I queried. I really rather think I'd have preferred the CNR.

More than 5 months after my query, I received a mass-BCC form rejection that didn't include the agent's last name and listed a different agency than the one I submitted to (Paper Over Board vs Irene Goodman). I didn't even know who this was at first! I thought, "Am I being rejected by an agent I haven't even queried?" Eventually, I figured it out.
Super Klassy, this one.

I received a revise & resubmit request back in January and just submitted my revised manuscript. I've gotta say, regardless of whether she signs me, she has been SO kind and her comments about my book were on point. I highly encourage anyone to query her!

Update: I've signed with her! So far she's been incredible in communication. She is also highly editorial, if anyone is wondering.

I submitted and got the regular confirmation email. It really depends on the time zone.

Thanks, @mlmarr312 she has a pretty low response rate so I guess I may never know. It was 10AM eastern time when I submitted
